It all started with this . . .
Bought at a shop in Kansas City . . . because I wanted . . .
do something about this -- the Master Bedroom with a pink chaise and a green chair. The chaise, was an auction purchase -- it's a small chaise from the 20's. The chair is a small chair as well, but it's 40 years newer -- from the 60's. And the chaise was purchased several years before I bought the chair.
I like the arrangement of chaise and chair in the room. They're both a similar scale -- a few differences in style but those are minor but they are different colors!
My intention when I bought the chair last year was to recover both of them!
Monday afternoon, my bedroom looked like this . . .
Furniture is gone, embarrassingly there was dirt under the chaise! I didn't sweep dirt under the rug, but I guess somehow it got swept under the chaise!
And the pillows from chaise and chair were piled in the settee.
And Saturday, the furniture came home . . .
Which looked like this, now
Looks like this.
And the sitting area in our bedroom now looks like this. Mary, upholsterer extraordinaire made the back of the chair look like the back of the chaise. Both the back pillow on chair and chaise as well as the cushion is filled with down!
The fabric on the chaise was the original fabric from 1920 and to always remember it, Mary made
a small pillow out of it
Perfect for the back of the chaise.
The bedroom sitting area as seen from the sunroom. Floor swept and mopped before the furniture was moved back in.
Another view of the bedroom (bed and chest) from the sunroom --
This fireplace is what sold me on Linderhof. I walked into the bedroom, saw this fireplace and I could have signed the contract then and there!
The downside of the master bedroom is that it is papered in pink roses. A bit feminine but Husband Jim has slept more in pink roses rooms than he has in more masculine rooms. Our first apartment when we were married had a pink rose papered bedroom as well. Husband Jim doesn't seem to mind!
It's Monday and I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday. It's one of the bigger changes we've made at Linderhof recently.
